We are now working with The Horwich Hub to offer help

We are pleased to announce we are working alongside The Horwich Hub who are a community interest organisation offering services (such as foodbanks and community support) to those in need in the Horwich area. By offering budgeting and debt advice, we hope we can help reduce the number of people who are reliant on the great work the team at The Horwich Hub does.
